Anglo concertina, inside and out.

R. Morse & Co. Ceili Anglo Concertina, inside and out.

Anglo concertina with traditional action and accordion reeds. Most vintage instruments have concertina reeds, which are smaller, tapered, and slightly undercut. The response is affected as much or more by the action, but accordion reeds and concertina reeds don’t sound quite the same. One isn’t inherently better or worse–just different.
